St. Louis Cardinals 3B Jhonny Peralta (thumb) hopes to be cleared to resume swinging a bat within the next two days.
Fantasy Tip: Peralta landed on the disabled list earlier this week because of continued discomfort in his surgically-repaired left thumb but the possibility of him resuming hitting soon is a good sign. INF Jedd Gyorko is likely to see the bulk of the action at the hot corner while Peralta remains sidelined and he's worthy of consideration for NL-only and cavernous mixed fantasy leagues.

St. Louis Cardinals 3B Jhonny Peralta (thumb) has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with more discomfort in his surgically-repaired left thumb. He had hit .221 since coming off the DL on June 7. 2B Jedd Gyorko is in the lineup at third base Tuesday, July 19, against the San Diego Padres.
Fantasy Tip: Look for Gyorko to get more at-bats at this position, along with SS Greg Garcia. Gyorko (.252-8-22) has been warming up at the plate as of late and has solid fantasy value in DFS and deeper NL and mixed formats. Garcia (.321-2-10) only has four hits in his last seven games and a lower fantasy value than Gyorko.

St. Louis Cardinals 3B Jhonny Peralta (thumb) does not have a timeline to return to the lineup, according to manager Mike Matheny. Matheny noted Peralta likely sustained the injury during a checked swing or swing and miss, which aggravated a "hot spot" in his surgically repaired thumb.
"It just kind of keeps showing up," Matheny said. "Trying to get a couple steps ahead and then something will happen. That's a violent movement, especially when you start talking about your hands going through the swing mechanics. Something we're going to have to keep working our way through."
Fantasy Tip: The nature of the injury is concerning given how vital a hitter's hands are to his success at the plate. Plus, Peralta is clearly not completely healed from the injury. He's sporting an underwhelming .221/.258/.416 slash line through 30 games, and at this point, he isn't a must-own player outside of cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues.
